    Default Oil Change

    Hi all

    i am planning to do an oil change for my signum 2.0 Dti this weekend....ive got myself 6 litres of CASTROL GTX DIESEL 10W-40 ENGINE OIL (ok not the best but good enough i think.

    What other things can i do for the engine while changing the oil? is an engine flush worth while? anything else i can put in to make it a worth while oil change.

    any advice is appreciated.

    cheers

    Some thoughts on flushing http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...ighlight=flush

    If you're going to use oil additives (not recommended by VX), you may might have well as bought 5-30 synthetic. Here's the VX one for next time http://www.autovaux.co.uk/LoadPortal...bid=5&vnum=137
